Came here for a lunchtime, because the place we had intended going to was closed.... Their loss, my gain. This is the 2nd time I have had a great meal here, this time at lunchtime, although quiet (who goes for a curry at lunchtime, Me!), the staff were friendly, attentive, and the food was seriously great. Always remember to choose... More

Really great food, large portions, though a little mild for my taste. Unfortunately they don't deliver but nor does anyone else in the village. Restaurant was busy so assuming popular but didn't stop as was having take-away.

As a regular to holidaying in the beautiful Deeside it's not that easy to find a place for a really good quality evening meal. Well, in the Lochnaggar we have found the ideal place for great food, great staff and great service. We went on Saturday night, thank goodness we booked as we aren't the only people to have discovered... More

Visited Ballater this weekend and had dinner at the Lochnagar on Friday night. Service was attentive without being too fussy, some unique dishes on the menu and the food was very, very good (so much so we went back on Saturday!). After dinner coffee and a complimentary nightcap rounded off a superb meal. Definitely worth a visit.

Four of us had a take away. Short time to get it ready for pick up and all very tasty. Even put it all in a box so it wouldn't spill in the car!! Very friendly staff would certainly like to eat here when next in Ballatr

Being Ballater residents we probably eat in Local restaurants about 10 Months of the year . I must say I feel priveledged to have such a varied choice living in a relatively remote Scottish community . Having travelled extensively and eaten in many different places I would rate the 'Lochnagar' as excellent . The staff are friendly , the food... More
